Description
FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The invention relates to a back-clip structure, especially to a back-clip having the structure for hanging a mobile phone and capable of making the display of the mobile phone being directly viewed by the user while the mobile phone is hanging on the waist belt of the user through the back-clip.

PRIOR ART

[0002] Whereas conventional back-clip, please refer to FIG. 1, is provided with a body 1, one side of the body 1 is provided with an embedded groove (not shown in the FIG.), a wedge 10 is provided movably in proper place of the embedded groove, and the wedge 10 projects to the other side of the body 1. The other side of the body 1 is in sequence provided with a sliding plate 12, an elastic plate 14, and a clip piece 16, wherein one end of the sliding plate 12 projects out of one end edge of the body 1, the other end is against the wedge 10. There is an elastic device 18 provided between the sliding plate 12 and the body 1, such that through pressing the sliding plate 12, the wedge 10 can be gradually inserted into the other side of the body 1, and while the force pressing on the sliding plate 12 is released, the sliding plate 12 will be moved to its original position by the elastic force of the elastic device 18. One end of the elastic plate 14 adjacent to the body 1 is fixed on the body 1, and the other end adjacent to the clip piece 16 is fixed to the clip piece 16, which makes one end of the clip piece 16 adjacent to the wedge 10 be against the body 1, such that the back-clip can be clipped on any object.

[0003] Further, there is a hanging rivet 2 provided on a mobile phone which can be inserted into the embedded groove, the hanging rivet 2 can slide into the embedded groove, and is restricted by the wedge 10. Such that after it has slid into the embedded groove, it won't slide out of the embedded groove, the hanging rivet 2 is generally provided on the leather case of a mobile phone, or is directly provided on the mobile phone, and the back-clip is generally clipped on the waist belt surrounding the waist of a user, so that the mobile phone can be easily carried.

[0004] However, after the mobile phone has been inserted into the embedded groove via the hanging rivet 2, the display of the mobile phone is generally located opposite to the belt, therefore, which makes user cannot view the display of the mobile phone directly, more particularly, while there is anyone calling to the mobile phone, the user cannot view the message displayed on the display; at that time, the user generally must press the sliding plate 12 to make the hanging rivet 2 slide out of the embedded groove, and then take the mobile phone to the front of eyes to view the display, or directly pull the mobile phone to view the display, thus, makes great inconvenience and trouble in use, especially when pulling the mobile phone directly for viewing the display, it is more possible to make damage to the back-clip or waist belt.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] In view of these, to improve the disadvantage that the user cannot directly view the display while using conventional back-clip which is clipped on the waist belt of a user, or the back-clip of belt will be damaged due to directly pull the mobile phone for viewing the display. Through long-term hard research and experiment, eventually the inventor develops and designs a back-clip structure of the invention, which is provided with a movable piece, one side of the movable piece is provided with an embedded groove, the other side adjacent to the end edge thereof is pivotally provided with a body, the movable piece can be against the body or can be moved away from being against the body. The side of body which is opposite to the movable piece is provided with a clip piece, and an elastic device is provided between the body and clip piece. Through the elastic force of the elastic device, one end of the clip piece can be exactly against the body making the back-clip being clipped on any object. Such that while the embedded groove is inserted with the hanging rivet provided on the mobile phone, the user of the mobile phone can directly view the display of the mobile phone through lifting the body pivotally.

[0006] One object of the invention is that an axial hole is provided on the movable piece at the place connecting with the body, a restrictive hole is provided on the body at the place connecting with the movable piece, and an axial bar is provided between the axial hole and the restrictive hole, making the movable piece connect movably and pivotally with the body. One side of the restrictive hole near its central part is provided with an arc projection, the restrictive hole is of the shape formed by two holes having two axial centers respectively, such that while the axial bar is located on the axial center of one hole, the movable piece can be against the body, and cannot slide out of the body, if the axle bar is moved to locate on the axial center of the other hole, the body will be able to be rotated pivotally from the movable piece around the axis of the axial bar.
